We miss our DAD!


Casey went to Utah this week to spend some quality time with his brother (and sister, I didn't forget you Mal). They were going caving and I'm sure he'll post about it when he gets back, but he sure sounds like he's having fun. So in an effort to keep up here are some of the fun things we've been up to while he's been gone.

  • Porter and Maya are on round two of swim lessons and are loving it this time. Our lessons are at 11:30 so it's much warmer out (Maya is especially happy about that) and Maya and Landon are in the same class so that is exciting for them (not so exciting for their poor teachers).
  • We went to tropicanoe cove and swam for half price on Family Day. The kids really had a good time there even they are all too small to go on any of the cool slides.
  • Nana and Hanny came to stay with us for a few days so we had lots of fun having them here. We played a big game of kickball in the back yard last night which was real fun except for uncle Steve made both of my children cry by beaming them with the ball (agressive).
  • Porter picked out a seeded watermellon (spoiled kids have never had one) and we ate that in the back yard and spit seeds at each other. They thought that was the coolest thing ever!
  • Aunt Sarah taught Bennett how to say Uh-Oh. It's cute (sorry about the blurry pic. it didn't look so blurry in the preview stage).
  • And I went to see The Dark Night (without Casey. I think he was kind of bummed). It was sufficiently creepy, and I'm dreading sleeping alone the next few nights. Hopefully I won't have nightmares of the joker coming to get me.

Don't worry, I think the Joker is dead. Mean ol' Steve-o, thinks he's Billy Madison. I'm having fun. We got back from the caves and now were up at Tyler Rippy's cabin at Solitude Ski Resort where we're playing in the pool and playing frisbee golf on the mountain. I miss you guys.

You have such cute kids...you should definately keep making more! When you have an ugly one I'll tell you to stop. :)

Amanda the photos are getting better and better and cuter and cuter though I don't know how they can be cuter since they are the cutest! Glad you are having so much fun in the sun!

Amanda thanks for letting Casey come to visit we had a fun time. Benji became Casey's shadow and is missing him now. We hope to work out a visit up there some time. Remember Rexburg days and our walks- we had some good times I wish our kids could be closer.
